This is a personal mod of omni originally created to add back the skin.helper.service dependency for ratings, as well as the tv episodes view from mimic.

Changes:
- Added skin.helper.service dependency and rating bits back.
- Added tv episode view from mimic
- BigLandscape view (3x3) with clearlogo/fanart fallback
- Added new color options for tweaked background tint: estuarish and mimic
- Added new overlay background with estuary style diffused background (taken and modified from estuary). The old omni overlay may be picked as "omni" in skin settings.
- s/omni/omnimod so it doesn't conflict.
- Added clearart to seekbar for movies and tv.

Images (otherwise same as omni):

I'll occasionally merge in upstream as best as I can, but I'm still treating this as a personal mod -- in other words stuff like missing strings probably won't be fixed.

Looks good, do you find that the Estuary background overlay has a smooth gradient? I always seem to see a lot of banding, but maybe it's just my TV.

I do get a bit of banding, but I've found that some colors make it more noticeable. For the most part, I'm okay with the banding I see.

I just bumped version and added three screenshots for a new tweak: showing clearart above the seekbar for movies and tv.

Bumped version and added a new view: BigLandscape. This is a compact 3x3 wall view with image fallback.

Bumped version, merged in upstream, and decreased banding and removed color from the default estuary style background overlay.

Edit: I also find the overlay looks great on mimic. To use it, grab the "background.png" from the media folder, and set it as the background overlay in mimic skin settings.
